Well I don't care for the larger text..I thought something went wrong with my computer.I have the option..and I am sure most of us do on our computers,to make the text larger if we want by simply clicking on"View"in the browser above then choosing how large we want to view our text size on anything anytime.I personaly like my text second to the smallest in that drop down box.This is too lage for me making me have to do much more scrolling to read the posts.

Not everyone is aware of the different font options they may have on their computer and I have received a lot of emails over the last few months requesting a slight increase in size.... I know what you are saying but I think we will try this for awhile and see what people think...ultimately, if there is an overwhelming demand for it to be made small again, I will do that.

Forget the smileys and avatars and just give me more info to make me rich and I'll be content. And I like the larger fonts, don't need to wear the bifocals as much.

I like the smaller font sizes better than these bigger ones.....

Although the GMC truck is cool, it should not be on the main page of smilies as it is too big and I have to scroll over when making new posts. It should be in the "More" section.

It's your site.I would like to be able to adjust the size of the text though. Why the big GMC truck.Doesn't that take up extra space on the server? The avatars are ok.I especially like the flags and the Steeler ones.

gmc I like that alot just get a Ford one please.

Sean Adams
02-12-2006, 10:27 PM
OK, I found a happy in between for the text...shrunk it so it is in the middle - slightly larger than the original way it was and slightly smaller than what I changed it to...also moved the gmc truck to the "more" section

All of a sudden MY font is smaller on the screen. This just happened this afternoon (2/12). On the view tab, I have it set for the largest, and when I hold the Ctrl key down and scroll the dial on the mouse, it doesn't change....How can I get the larger fonts back? That is by FAR my preference. For those that like the smaller fonts, they still have that option......

where do ya find the avaters and how do ya put them on ?

I have to agree with the others that the big fonts really aren't so cool. Even the "middle" size is too big.

Sean Adams

In the top left hand corner in the green navigation bar is "User CP" which stands for User Control Panel - in there you can choose avatars, subscribe to threads, choose and edit a signature, etc...

Are you still having this problem? I can check with Pierre but I know that if you do go to the "view" option you should be able to change the size of your font when you view it....the site itself has only moved from 10 to 10.5 in font size...might need to logout of the site and then log back in? Either way, let me know and I will have Pierre look into it if it is still a problem.

We dont need no GMC similie, we need a Honda Civic similie, the choice work vehicle of landscape professionals. My truck can't hold a candle to one.

Sean Adams
02-14-2006, 08:17 AM
Thanks....I will check and see why there are two ages listed....maybe one age can be your actual age and the second one is the age you actually feel....;)

Squizzy246B
02-14-2006, 08:32 AM
the second one is the age you actually feel.... About a 107 today....and that was the temperature too.

Any chance of a smiley with an Aussie Flag?

Sean Adams
02-14-2006, 08:36 AM
I'm going to find an Eagles, Cowboys, Bruins and an Aussie Flag right now...

Sean Adams
02-14-2006, 08:58 AM
I added some more avatars...

country flags - australia, Canada's flag, ireland, italy, new zealand, scotland, uk

people - einstein, shakespeare, capone

sports - bruins, eagles, cowboys

and Harley Davidson

To use an avatar, in the top left hand corner, under "User CP" you will find it there....

The Cowboy
02-14-2006, 09:16 PM
Thanks, Sean, it is easier to read now. I wish the new green wasn't so dark. It looks like it's had to much nitrogen and iron.dancing
It would be nice if a Ford or Chevy truck was added. I don't identify with GMC, who does?hammer The rest looks good.
us flag canada Wheres the Mexican flag?

From what I understand Mike Sean is working on this very thing for another member Runner. He said it bothers his eyes. I like the color changes. The green & gray go well together. The new smilies are top notch :drinkup:

thanks again

Sean Adams
02-16-2006, 08:37 AM
If you have a graphic on your computer, you can go to user cp and in the avatar section you can upload your avatar from your computer there...but it has to be 100x100 pixels in size max I think....if it is bigger you would need to resize it

yardmanlee
02-16-2006, 08:44 AM
